Third Grade Rocks!
Third Grade Bilingual Teacher
Hello! My name is Ms. Salazar and I am a third grade bilingual teacher. I have a degree in Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of North Texas, and I am certified to teach EC-4. This is going to be my 18th year at Memorial Elementary. This year I will be teaching Dual Language third grade Reading/ Language Arts and Social Studies. I have had the pleasure of having taught 1st-4th during my teaching career here at this marvelous school, and every summer I teach PreK summer school. I am a proud Texan and Mexican American. I love reading, being at the beach, listening to music, bingeing my TV shows, and my two dogs. I have three wonderful children. My oldest, Ruben has graduated, is working hard, and attends college. Gabriel is a senior at Garland High School. My youngest is my daughter, Karina and she is a 6th grader at Bowman.
What Memorial means to me.
I absolutely love Memorial and its welcoming environment. I have only taught at Memorial Elementary since I started back in 2004, and I am so lucky to still be working here. I have met so many wonderful families and have had the privilege of teaching their younger siblings and family members throughout the years. All three of my children have attended Memorial Elementary school from kindergarten to fifth grade and have great memories.
